05.12.18 / Step away from the computer

Step away from the computer.

If there is one thing we’ve learnt from hosting two years of ‘designerly’ breakfasts in downtown Melbourne, Australia; it’s the value of simply stepping away from your computer to share / talk / eat with other creatives.

As one breakfaster wrote in an email this week: 'for me, the breakfasts offer a much needed sanity check and realisation that we’re all just people, doing similar things, going through the same stuff. It’s clarity and reassurance that you’re doing the right thing.'

We took the breakfast concept into the night and ran two trial UNseminars.
They were a hit.
We’re on a roll.

Next year we're taking it further...
